Stores In Amazon
       Feedback from buyers determine the growth of your Amazon online
business. A buyer always expects quality products and services for the money they
spent. In other words, they look for value for their money. Negative feedback
comes when expectations are not met. Handling such feedback in a right and
efficient way helps us get rid of them. As the store owner, you may contact the
customer, understand the concern/reason for dissatisfaction and then work
immediately to solve it. Once it is solved, you can request the customer to remove
the feedback that they left since now the issue is solved by you.

in Amazon is given a chance to rate the performance of a seller based on 3 major

Service. The buyer can rate the seller from 1 – 5 based on their purchase
